Great news!

I started my day by finding interesting photos on my wildlife camera. It was a bobcat, carrying something in his mouth.
Zooming in showed that the bobcat was going to have a rodent for breakfast. He must have just captured and killed it.
He walked out of the view of the camera, probably seeking a secluded spot to eat breakfast.
A little later in the day, K and I headed for the vet to get her kidneys checked after 4 weeks of antibiotics for the infection.
I was present for the ultrasound, and the vet said that her kidneys looked "beautiful". Believe me, they did not look beautiful four weeks ago so this was awesome news!
That proclamation brought a huge smile to my face. We'll continue antibiotics for another four weeks to make sure that we've killed every last bug that was attacking her kidneys. In the meantime, she's free to zoom!


  1. YAY!!!!!!!! That is just wonderful - so very good to hear such fantastic news. Zoom away, K - that last pic looks like you are very ready to oblige.

  2. Oh, that's wonderful news! K looks like she's celebrating!

  9. Yay! I'm so happy to hear this good news about K and am looking forward to many more pictures of her zooming along.

    The bobcat is a beautiful creature. It must have been a real thrill when you first saw those shots. I have a much less exotic predator on my blog today that you may want to check out.

  19. What wonderful news about K!!!!

  20. Woohoo! How wonderful!!! That's awesome, especially with all the medical trials she's already been through this year.

    Very cool pics of the cat, too! I couldn't help but wonder if he/she played with the food before, um, being able to carry the lifeless body in its mouth. That's what MY cats always did!

  21. Outstanding news about K!

    Looks like that bobcat has a young squirrel? Very cool photos. Great to get behavior shots on camera traps!

  22. LOVE the shots of K - before and after... Great news.

  23. Woohoo! Great news to start the weekend! Enjoy an extra romp together and watch in the tall grass for the White Spirit Dogs running joyfully alongside!
